This is a little known fact but one that shouldn’t come as a surprise, Mark Wahlberg is without a doubt one of our fave actors. Apart from being a seemingly cool dude, the man knows what works best for his career with none of his previous movie credits flopping. It’s no surprise then seeing him back in what seems to be an action comedy but under the Netflix umbrella this time around and titled Spenser Confidential:
Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) — an ex-cop better known for making trouble than solving it — just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But first he gets roped into helping his old boxing coach and mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), with a promising amateur. That’s Hawk (Winston Duke), a brash, no-nonsense MMA fighter convinced he’ll be a tougher opponent than Spenser ever was. When two of Spenser’s former colleagues turn up murdered, he recruits Hawk and his foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), to help him investigate and bring the culprits to justice. From director Peter Berg, Spenser Confidential is an action-comedy co-starring Bokeem Woodbine, Marc Maron and Austin Post. Inspired by Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins.
Another one that could have easily landed on the big screen but Netflix quickly capitilised and is instead making it easier for us to indulge in in the comfort of our homes…just perfect. Also interesting to see one of our music faves also form part of the movie in Post Malone! Spenser Confidential is all set to land on March 6, pin it on your calendar.
